Paignton to Brixham

5 miles (8 km)

This is a popular coastal walk between these two lovely Torbay towns. It's about a 5 mile walk with the option of returning by bus or walking back the same way if you prefer. It's a beautiful stretch of coast with a number of pretty beaches, sheltered coves and a nice woodland section.
Start the walk from Paignton Sands near to the train station and follow the South West Coast Path south to Goodrington Sands. You continue to Broadsands where there is another lovely little beach and a pitch and puttcourse on the adjacent headland. There's also good views of theDartmouth Steam Railway, which crosses twoBrunelviaducts near the beach.
After leaving Broadsands you head around the Churston Golf Club and through The Grove, an ancient, semi-natural woodland. You then come to the pretty Brixham Battery and Gardens.Here you'll find 14-acres of gardens with an old Battery Observation Post and a 4.7 inch Gun Floor.
The final section takes you to Brixham Harbour and the centre of this attractive coastal fishing port. Look out for the replica of the Golden Hind and the Victorian statue of William of Orange.
You can extend the walk by continuing east along the coast path to Berry Head Country Park. The coastal park is also a nature reserve with lots of interesting coastal plantlife and a large Guillemotcolony.
For a longer route try the Torquay to Brixham Walk.
